Friday Faves-Favorite Music In My Car

It's time for Friday Faves over at It's Almost Naptime!! and Missy is asking for our favorite music to listen to in the car.
Most of the time I'm listening to KLOVE when I'm in my car. I love listening to praise and worship music while I'm driving. I drive the girls to school so we spend our drive to school worshipping through song. After the mad dash to the car, this gives us a great chance to refocus ourselves as we begin the day.
"God Of This City" by Bluetree is one of my favorite songs. Greater things have yet to come. Praise God!

If you don't know the story behind this song, take a moment to listen.

And I love Free To Be Me by Francesca Battistelli. It took me a long time to really get it but I finally am at a place in my life where I truly understand and enjoy my freedom through Christ despite the rips and dents.

As a mom of two young girls, the song More Beautiful You by Johnny Diaz goes straight to my heart. I want to raise my girls to understand that their true beauty is within and that they were created perfectly by God.

Natalie Grant is one of my favorite artists. When I listen to her songs I always feel like she's been right where I've been in her life. While I am getting better as this, I am guilty at times of putting up a front and not always letting other's in on my struggles. I feel I need to be strong and just deal with the challenges I'm facing instead of trusting God to take care of things. Her song Perfect People is a great reminder to allow myself to be real and know I can't do it on my own. I may not be perfect but I can be changed by a perfect God.

On long trips in the car I can't always pick up KLOVE. If the girls are with me we'll usually listen to one of their CDs which means we listen to a lot of High School Musical 1, 2 & 3. This song usually gets a lot of play.

Wanna see more Friday Faves or join in? Stop by It's Almost Naptime!!

I had never heard that song "More Beautiful You" before - I love it! With three girls, that's the message I want them to hear. I blogged about it :)

Pam-We not only hear it we watch it. I'm amazed at how often they still want to watch those movies.

Tammy-Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad to hear you like the song. I love it!
